Stori and Jesse talk about the transfiguration today as they cover Luke 9:28-36.
Jesse gives the context and sets the scene for the passage and Stori relates it a little to church camp. Stori and Jesse dig into the juxtaposition of Jesus showing them a moment of transition, and the disciples want to camp out in that moment of change and preserve it.
Stori shares a beautiful quote from the book Gilead, by Marilynne Robinson and they discuss how hard it can be to update our view of someone when they go through significant changes, but how beautiful it is to be able to expand our ability to see them for who they actually are, rather than keeping them in the box of how we have always seen them.
